A Charlie Chaplin impersonator and a guy drawing a pentagram on the ground, on the Royal Mile, Edinburgh.
A girl dressed as a mermaid on the royal mile, an evil mermaid with red eyes and pointy teeth… Gotta love the festival.
One of the street performers on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh during the Edinburgh festival. She was painted head to toe in gold, hence the name of the post. Thought I would try out a tilt shift – style edit on this one. I wasn’t sure about it, but it’s grown on me.
One of only a couple of good pics I got from an outing to Argyll Street, Glasgow, at around 1am. Anyone who knows Glasgow will know that hanging around alleyways in the city centre at 1am on a Thursday night is not too safe, so I didn’t hang around for long. As I was taking this shot two girl were fighting and screaming just round the corner from me, in another lane I think. Still I managed a couple of shots, so more to come.
The reason I went out that night was specifically to get shots of the dilapidated building in the background of this pic, but my standard 18-55mm lens is broken so I’m stuck with my 70-300mm, which is no good for getting shots that close from the street, hence why I ended up far back in the lane taking this.
This is a shot from a month or so ago down by the River Clyde. I kind of overlooked it but I came across it earlier and decided to try and get a vintage camera effect on it by tweaking with the curves and stuff in Photoshop. For some reason actions wont work in my Photoshop, but it was easy enough to get a similar effect anyway.
Since I spend half my life in bus stations these days and since I haven’t had much time to go anywhere else apart from work or Uni I decided to take my camera with me to Glasgow bus station the other day on my way to Edinburgh. This is about the only good image I got but not bad for a quick snap while I was waiting on the bus. The other two pics are from my iPhone, it doesn’t have the best camera in the world (and no flash?!), but I tried to fix them with Photoshop. They were taken on the subway and in the subway station. Haven’t quite got up the courage for pulling my camera out on the subway yet, so iPhone shots will have to do for now!
